  • Resistance 2 multiplayer demo reaches Europe this October

    SCEE’s announced a multiplayer demo for Europe this October, but has unfortunately failed to give a solid date. “The event will allow PS3 owners the opportunity to be the first to explore new levels, modes and weapons – as well as provide Insomniac Games, the developer of Resistance 2, and SCEE with feedback on the […]

  • SCEE: Euro Resistance 2 date to be confirmed "fairly soon"

    Following confirmation of specific Resistance 2 release dates for both Japan and the US, SCEE has said it isn’t ready to do the same for Europe right now. “In European territories we’ve only ever said November,” a spokesperson told VG247. “We’re not making announcements as of the specific date just yet.” When can we expect […]

    After the link. The quality’s not amazing, but you can see what’s going on. Basically, poor old Nathan’s in a spot of bother. Don’t spoil yourself if you want to stay fresh for what is almost certainly going to be one of the biggest games of the year. Do if you don’t.

  • "Only On PlayStation" badge missing from PAL Resistance 2 cover art

  • New Resistance 2 footage shows Twisted History

    Eurogamer has some new Resistance 2 footage called Twisted History revealing the interesting back story to the invasion of Chimera: how it all started, that kind of thing. No new gameplay on show, but definitely worth a look. Through the link for this one. By Mike Bowden

  • NPD to date for 2008: Wii whitewashes while 360 and PS3 thrash it out

    In the wake of July’s NPD figures, we thought we’d look at just how well the ‘big three’ have fared over the last seven months by tallying all hardware data for 2008. We all know Nintendo is having a fantastic year, but just how well is Wii doing? Microsoft and Sony are fighting their own […]

  • Resistance 2 beta goes live

    According to this Kotaku piece, the Resistance multiplayer beta has gone live. There’s no solid detail there, aside from the fact that those on the beta have been notified by mail.

  • Qore episode three includes invite to Resistance 2 September beta

    Looks like Sony knows exactly what gamers want for, er, whatever holiday happens in September.

The news is a real coup for Qore, and will surely raise questions about how publishers […]

  • New Killzone 2 screens show prettiness

    PSU’s posted up some new Killzone 2 shots, showing ably that the Guerilla shooter’s no slouch in the graphics department. There are a few old ones in there, but what the hey. Have fun.

  • Surreal Resistance 2 website uncovered

    The folks over at NeoGAF have somehow uncovered an “interesting” website which apparently relates to Insomniac’s Resistance 2.

    Pretty. We felt a bit like Homer with sprinkles when we look at this, a close up look at the cover panels of the upcoming GamePro Resistance 2 exclusive. We assume this is a ploy to preempt the fact the feature will be scanned in its entirety about 15 seconds after it falls through Johnny […]

  • New Resistance 2 trailer hits YouTube

    A new trailer for Resistance: Fall of Man 2 has been found, says PS3Fanboy. Originally, it was on Eurogamer TV, but was quickly removed.

  • First Resistance 2 trailer released, is a bit of a let down

    Big movie here of an interview with SCEA’s Scott Steinberg and Naughtey Dog’s Evan Wells.

See after the link.

  • Watch Resistance 2 mo-cap men debase themselves

    There’s no honour in this. These movies show two men in a motion capture session for Resistance 2. One is dressed in a red suit and growls a lot. The other shouts, “Come on” at him periodically. We may have to type a lot throughout the day, but at least there isn’t much grunting involved.
